It would be great if you could add some information for each set of pictures - London is such a huge city!

Great effort, your photos make me miss London. Good to see pictures of the area I lived in (Hoxton, Old Street area)

Thanks RKC. And openlyjane I will try and add some more information on the pictures in the future. That last set was all from around King's Cross, everything south of Euston Road and Pentonville Road

The following are taken from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, SE10, which looks onto Canary Wharf and the rest of London to the North and West

This next lot are taken from Hoxton station, on the orbital Overground line. Looking south to the City of London with the Broadgate Tower in the centre, Heron and Gherkin to the left and Tower 42 to the right. To the east are the backs of the houses of one section of Kingsland Road, which has about 15 Vietnamese restaurants in a very short stretch, and the blocks of Hoxton beyond.

This is off Gray's Inn Road, looking down Elm Street that turns into Mount Pleasant, in Clerkenwell.

Looking down Tottenham Court Road, toward Centre Point, W1. Lots of furniture shops in the top part and electronics down the bottom.

Goodge Street, W1

P1040109 by tomweaver2011, on Flickr

Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia, W1. Fitzrovia was apparently known for its rag trade, not that you'd be able to tell that now, and these days is more for publishing, production and design houses and firms (Architect Ken Shuttleworth's London office for MAKE is just one minute behind on the same road, if you are ever in the area worth looking into the window displays of the models of the past, present and future projects), but is still one of the more mixed use areas of central London, with residential and retail uses, as well as lots of pubs, cafes and many restaurants on Charlotte Street, parallel to Whitfield.

Can't quite remember what road this was on but I was riding the 242 home through the City, and this is looking eastwards onto Bishopsgate (a vaguely north-south road) with the core of the Pinnacle rising on a nice evening.

I believe its the Aviva centre/tower on the left here (maybe the name has changed?), next to which the Cheesegrater should soon be popping up (hopefully)

The St Giles Hotel, which fronts onto Tottenham Court Rd in the West End, pretty much on the boundaries of both Camden borough and the City of Westminster and postcodes W1 and WC1. Viewed from the bottom of Morwell St

Morwell St in all its glory! (Srsly one of my favourite streets in London..) The back of Time Outs offices are here still with a big red neon sign...in a back street.
